I have recently begun researching the Daniel Whitehead you have referred to. I have NOT (yet) read the Macy article from the NY Genealogical and Biographical Report (Record?) concerning this man and his two marriages. Nonetheless, I share your skepticism that the Jane Ireland mentioned in the 1668 Last Will of Thomas Ireland of Hempstead could be the woman who married 1st Daniel Whitehead (as his second wife) and then married 2nd John Ingersoll of Huntington. This wife of Daniel and, later, John was named Jean/Jane, but I sincerely doubt if she was the Jane Ireland who was daughter of Thomas Ireland. So I guess that leaves her maiden name a mystery for now, to be discovered in future research by some enterprising Whitehead descendant.
